RE: Looking for recommendations on a two bike rack

I did not read four pages of responses so I apologize is this has been suggested. I just took two scrap pieces of 1x6's cut to length and placed them in aisle. I then remove the front wheels of our 2 bikes positioned the bikes where they would not move - marked the boards and used mounts from Amazon. The bikes are inside, out of the weather and possible theft for about $70.00. Easy solution for me. https://www.amazon.com/MBP-Alloy-Release-9x100mm-Storage/dp/B07MDXZGMB/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2IM1Y060167SW&keywords=bike+skewers+mounts&qid=1658186842&sprefix=bike+skewers+mounts%2Caps%2C74&sr=8-3

RE: When a redneck wins the lottery....

That last one.... wow! Must have held a lot of beer for that monstrosity! Poor F350 looks like it's bending the frame. The body lines to the box don't line up. I saw the last on April 2020 at Coquia Beach on Anna Maria Island, FL. It was so grotesque I didn't even want to take a picture of it.

RE: Prepping for below freezing temps and snow.

I am hoping to build a shop like that next year. One more winter with things uncovered... Me too, unfortunately "next year" never seems to come.

RE: DC-DC Charger Wiring Input Suggestions

Living in the NE with all the salt on the road, I did not use Anderson plugs when I wired my DC-DC charger as there was no way to adequately weather seal the connectors or cable penetrations when not connected. I installed two Pollak 2 pole recepticals, one on the camper and one in the bed of the truck. Each is weather sealed and I don't have any pigtail to worry about when the camper is off the truck which is most of the time in my case. I then made a connector cable with the female connectors on each end. Works great for me, but not the least expensive solution. I also looked into trolling motor connectors but wanted something with a higher amp rating. https://www.etrailer.com/Wiring/Pollak/PK12801.html?feed=npn&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Google%20%7C%20Shop%20-%20Wiring&adgroupid=84618835800&campaignid=1672412098&creative=394587238933&device=c&devicemodel=&feeditemid=&keyword=&loc_interest_ms=&loc_physical_ms=9001738&matchtype=&network=g&placement=&position=&gclid=Cj0KCQjwnoqLBhD4ARIsAL5JedInXyn3TtLtTAXS013RVl9eO0mH-XMJQtjQJLEBR7yN215etQmDhbMaAsxnEALw_wcB

RE: Battery Question

I don't understand these arguments at all... If you have a LiFePo4 battery and camp in extreme cold weather, move the battery to inside the camper. Problem solved... Take it out of storage at -37 and let me know how that works for you. It is fine if one were full time. I'm still waiting for FWC to describe the power system he uses. If I were to take mine out of storage at -37, assuming the batteries had some % of charge remaining, I would: 1. Shut off/disconnect any charging devices - solar, shore power, DC-DC charger, no genny running. 2. Start the furnace. My 2 BB batteries are inside the conditioned space and have a heat duct discharge adjacent to the batteries. Let the furnace run for 24 hrs. while monitoring the battery temp via my Victron BM712 and an external digital thermostat next to the batts. My external digital thermo switch, serves a double duty as my Victron DC/DC charger generates considerable heat, so I installed 2 small 4" fans which are set to come on at 30C. My BB batts do not have built in heaters which are available. 3. Once I'm confident the internal battery temp is above 32F/0C, I'd start charging them. Note: If attempting to charge cold batteries, according Tony discussions with BB, the BB internal battery monitor will disconnect at 25F to prevent damage to the batteries. To reset the internal BM, just disconnect/reconnect the negative battery cable. On a side note, the coldest I've ever experienced was during an extended business trip to Prince Albert, SK. I'm not sure I'd personally want to camp in that weather but with adequate preparation, it should be possible.
